Regarding the comments that he is the only one in Europe who congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his election victory, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that he is no one’s servant, but that he acts as the president of a state that pursues its policy independently and in a sovereign manner.

Vucic told reporters in Brussels, where he is attending the Nuclear Energy Summit, that he will extend congratulations whoever he wants to, whilst always protecting Serbia’s interests.

“I am no one’s servant, I love my country more than anything in the world and I act as a president of an independent and sovereign state, in the best interest of its citizens,” added the Serbian president.
